    Hi everyone Smile

    Me and Dougie are off to the south west tip of Cornwall for a week next Saturday. It's the first time I will have been there as a photographer (rather than an ancient site roaming hippie!) and first time for Dougie full stop.....

    So, anyone got any recomendations for locations? We are based near St Just and want to do a lot of coastal and beach photography, but any woods and streams etc would be good too. I know all the iconic locations like St Micheals Mount / Lands End / Minac etc, but any suggestions along the costal paths or secret coves?

    Any suggestions welcome Smile

    Watching this with interest... Me, Mr McFade & Mr Wagster are all headed for Newquay on Sunday, and we'd like to despoil any decent areas before you get to them Wink

    There is a nice lillte cove in St Just, I think it called Porth Nanvin.

    This bloke has some really good shots from there.

    There's Rocky Valley near Tintagel - great walk and good scenery

    Mousehole - goes without saying as a must

    Lizard Point and Kynance Cove

    The list is endless

    I see my link did not work, just google Porth Nanvin a few will turn up. It seems to be very popular with photographers.

    Barry has given a great recommendation ( it's actually spelt Nanven). Amazing place.

    Thanks for that Barry, I have found the guys website and its very handy for location ideas.Smile

    Any other sunset locations that are good for foreground rocks and pebbles etc?

    But Angie, remember, you don't need the beach or whatever to come armed with rocks and pebbles, you can take your own Wink

    Cape Cornwall is a cracking spot Angie. It is just up from Lands End and has a National Trust car park. The rocks in the cove are amazing.

    It is right next door to St Just too.

    lol Paul....I know the Merry Maidens very well....as I said its my first time as a photographer, but I have spent many nights drumming and didging under the moon at those stones (after a few down at the Lamorna Wink ofcourse) Tongue

    I know all the sacred sites, but not really up on coves and coastal walks that give the best oppotunities for landscapes and seascapes. I am looking for great rocks and pebbles and any good spots for wild flowers along the cliffs too .

    We are just by Cape Cornwall Git, so thanks for the tip....will definatly check it out ....hope you and the family are well by the way, seems an awfull long time since we last went photographing as a group Sad I'm sure November will come round soon enough though! Smile
